As we wish Andy Byford well as he leaves the TTC and moves into his new role — let us reaffirm that the City of Toronto must hire a replacement who respects workers’ rights and champions the expansion of much-needed public transit in Toronto. Regardless of who occupies the CEO chair at the TTC, we will continue to fight for transit workers, specifically protecting jobs, bringing an end to privatization, cleaning up the dirty air in the subway system and keeping members safe.
Local 113 is clear: two hour fares are the only way to move forward in 2018. That is why we are standing together to support TTCriders’ advocacy campaign — calling on everyone to do their part for a fairer system.
Two hour fares would allow riders to get off and back on the TTC an unlimited amount of times within two hours, without any additional cost. This allows riders flexibility to get on and off to do things like pick up their kids or buy milk.
Messages should be sent ASAP because the TTC Commission and City Council will begin voting on November 28 on the two-hour fare transfer.
Send a message to your councilor right now calling for them to support two hour fares.
